Here Are All The Results From The States That Voted In Super Tuesday 2

Two weeks ago, the US had Super Tuesday, when around a dozen states had their primary votes to choose their party's presidential nominee.

Then, Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side and Donald Trump on the Republican side came out in front. Since then, several more states voted, with Clinton and Trump continuing to lead.

This Tuesday, five more states vote in Super Tuesday 2: Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Illinois and Missouri.

This was a major moment on both sides of the campaign. Without winning any states on Tuesday, Bernie Sanders faces a major challenge going forward. Meanwhile, with Trump losing Ohio to John Kasich, the GOP has a chance to block him from actually becoming the GOP nominee. Marco Rubio dropped out of the race.

With the confusing delegate system we have in place, candidates need a certain amount of delegates to win the party nomination. When you vote in the primary, you're voting for a delegate to vote for a candidate at the party conventions this summer.

Republican candidates need 1,237 delegates to win their nomination. Democratic candidates need 2,383 delegates to win their nomination. On Super Tuesday 2, there are 367 delegates at stake for Republicans and 691 for Democrats.

Here are the final results from Tuesday's voting.

Hillary Clinton: 5
